* ExtremelyGenreSavvy: Diomedes and Nestor, right after Lesser Ajax mess up Athena's Alter. They both had a discussion and agreed to leave Troy ''immediately''. Just in time to avoid Zeus's storm and make it safely back. This make sense, since Nestor, as one of the old heroes, has literally SeenitAll and knows that sticking around with the guy who piss off a god is a ''bad idea''. Diomedes as Athena's personal favorite, got off scot-free and was a old pal of Nestor.
